Taylor is a professional in every way. She came prepared for the problem and offered and demonstrated techniques that worked immediately. It was really an eye opener. Her confidence with and in the dogs made a world of difference in their behavior. We were having problems with our dogs exhibiting aggressive behavior towards other dogs. By the end of the session, we had both dogs inside the dog park, showing no aggression. She followed up with a written synopsis of the problem and steps to take for behavior change. I would highly recommend Taylor. She has a complete grasp of dogs and their behavior, and is not afraid to " think outside the box" to problem solve. She is a pleasure to work with, and dogs respond very positively to her!

Carol Anne is a life saver! I had an accident and will not be able to walk my large active collie for several months. Carol Anne has not only done a magnificent job of bonding with and exercising my dog, she is also continuing my dog's behavioral training. I cannot recommend Waggin' Tails more highly! Thank you, Carol Anne

Bill has done such an amazing job with Aubrey! Before having him as my dog trainer, I thought that training my puppy was impossible. Aubrey was very disobedient, never listened when I called, aggressive with other dogs, and destroyed just about anything. I was running out of options, and considered giving my puppy away. K9 training was my last resort, and my best investment! Just a few days at Off Leash K9 training, and Aubrey transformed into new dog! He contacted me frequently about Aubrey's progress and was always happy to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend him to anyone with dog issues!

I have known Kevin at Big Dawgs Behavior & Obedience for about 7 years. When I took in a stray Rottweiler mix with major fear and aggression issues towards other dogs, he provided wonderful advice and guidance for dealing with those behaviors. Thanks to Kevin's support and encouragement, I was able to manage my new dog's issues and assimilate him into my home with my other pets.

Marlene is so great! What I liked most was her experience and knowledge. She isn't just some trainer who went through a seminar and now thinks they are a dog trainer. I wasn't sure I even needed help thinking I could do it myself no problem. But after meeting with her I realized just how little I know about training and my dog's behavior. I realized this was an investment for the next 10-12 years that I would be spending with my pooch and am so grateful for the wealth of knowledge she provided. Marlene loves dogs and helping people and it shows.

We have a 5 year old pit bull that has been a stubborn, dog aggressive, and high anxiety dog since he was very young. He has a lot of energy but because of his behavior I was unable to take him on walks. Kelly, from Knine training showed me the proper way to use his pinch collar which stopped his pulling on walks all together. He responded extremely well to the corrections I was giving him with the pinch collar. Kelly has personalized the training by listening to our dogs existing problems and showing my husband and I the proper way to correct him. Kelly is always very patient and gives us great feedback which is always effective. Our dog has improved by leaps and bounds in just a matter of weeks with the help from Kelly. We appreciate everything she has done so far to help our dog and we look forward to continuing our training with her.

I have had Jennifer looking after my dogs for many years. It’s important for me to know that my fur babies are well taken care of and have their needs met when I am not around. I trust Jennifer with my animals, and knowing she has a long extensive background with animal care puts my mind it ease. Her professionalism and work ethics is exactly what I expect and can rely on her being on time. The value of her service is truly exceptional and till today she is the primary person I will call.

I have frequently referred to Jennifer for assistance with my cat behavioral issues. Anything from aggression, eating abnormalities, cat box issues, integrating a new member into the family, but most importantly assisting me with the many challenges of dealing with geriatric cats. She was always very knowledgeable and addressed each problem with a very attentive and caring attitude. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who has been frustrated with trying to find a peaceful resolution to their furry felines behavior.

Upon the first meeting with Hilary, I felt that she had a really great attitude and willingness to do whatever it took to make my dog feel comfortable. Super Big Plus...She was able to start right away, which took a lot of stress off of my mind. She's also very easy to work with for any adjustments to the daily/weekly walking schedule. I have a lot of gratitude for her choice to work with animals and it gives me peace of mind, that she knows her stuff.

Sharon is a gem! I have taken my dog Gus to her for both boarding and puppy classes. She is by far one of the most patient animal trainers that I know. Her heart is devoted to loving and caring for animals. She is also very experienced, professional, and flexible with schedules. Your animal will have top notch care at her boarding facility where she spends many hours of her day walking with your pet. Her small operation ensures that your pet gets the care it deserves and is treated like family.

Cheryl took very good care of my dog and cat over the weekend. She was easy to contact and to set up dates to meet my animals. She even sent me a picture to let me know they were ok. I will use her in the furture to take care of my animals.

Derek is extremely professional and is great with animals. He has been walking my dog for several weeks now and I couldn't be happier with the level of service provided. I have recommended Bones and Leashes Pet Service to friends in the area.
